No Obstacle Too Tall | 1 Samuel 17:37

Read This Passage: 1 Sam. 17:20-51

37 Moreover David said, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!”

1 Samuel 17:37 NKJV

Goliath laid down a challenge to the Israel army and nobody in the army wanted a piece of the giant. Many of us can feel this same way when trial and tribulation comes our way. None of us want anything to do with undergoing trial and tribulation, right? Everybody wants it easy in life but the reality of life is that we are all going to have affliction. Yes, all of us will have giants that we will face in our life that will either defeat us or be defeated by us. I hope that you desire to go out and defeat your goliaths rather than cower in fear to them.

Those in the army of Israel were fearful of Goliath but David was full of confidence in standing up to Goliath. Why was David so confident? Because he knew that God was with him. To Saul, David recalled what God had already done for him. David said that he had been delivered by the power of God from the paw of a lion and bear. Think about it, David considered the lion and the bear to be far worse than Goliath and so he knew that God would deliver him from Goliath.

Everyone knows the story about how “David” defeated Goliath, but many seem to forget that David gave all the glory to God for his victory over Goliath. You have already faced goliaths in your life that God has given you the victory over. So, if God has already given you the victory over giants once before, certainly trust that He will do it again for you. So, don’t be fearful of the giant trials and tribulations you will or are currently facing, God has already given you the victory.
